Romelu Lukaku has posted on Twitter that he will never do a knee slide celebration again

as it went incredibly wrong after his opening goal against Aston Villa yesterday.

The Belgian international returned to Stamford Bridge as a Chelsea player for the first time since his departure in 2014

In the first half, the Chelsea forward received the ball from Mateo Kovavic

inside the left channel and dribbled past Axel Tuanzebe to open the scoring.

As Lukaku went to celebrate with the Chelsea faithful

he tried to knee slide in front of the fans and hilariously fell over as his knees were caught in the turf.

The Chelsea players quickly went over to the Belgian international to celebrate and check that he hadn’t injured himself in the process.

The celebration has caused widespread reaction on social media including Chelsea legend Didier Drogba

who commented on an Instagram post of Lukakus goal and said: ‘Hello doctor David. Can you get him new knees?’

Drogba also thanked Marcos Alonso for checking if Lukaku was injured in the aftermath of the goal.

The day after the game, Lukaku tweeted: ‘No more sliding on my knees after yesterday’s celebration…’

In the second half, the Belgian international capped off an excellent performance with a stunning second goal

Closing minutes of the game as he blasted the ball into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area.

This perfectly rounded off the day for Lukaku who helped Chelsea to be joint top of the Premier League table

After the game, Lukaku said: ‘It was my dream since I was 11 to score here. I’ve worked hard for this moment.

‘I was up and down at the start of my career but I’ve found a certain consistency in the last three years’

‘In Italy, I was playing in a league where I maybe had one or two chances in a game so I had to take them.’
